WESLEY ROBERT PHENEGAR JR
Remembering An American Hero
As an American, I would like to thank you for your service and for your sacrifice made on behalf of our wonderful country. The youth of today could gain much by learning of heroes such as yourself, men and women whose courage and heart can never be questioned.
May God allow you to read this, and may He allow me to someday shake your hand when I get to Heaven to personally thank you. May he also allow my father to find you and shake your hand now to say thank you; for America, and for those who love you.
With respect, and the best salute a civilian can muster for you, Sir
A name I carry with honor.
Wesley. My name is Wesley Philip Alaniz. My grandfather, Lt. Col. William Schwab 'Cowboy', was your wingman and best friend and I was named after you. Each time the wall passes through our town I go find your name and I always take pride telling your story, what little bit my papa Bill has told me. You are not forgotten and your name lives on...
I had the Honor of reading your name on the 8th of Nov
for the 30th Ann of The Wall
